What factors influence the performance of a mosquito trap?

Factors in mosquito trap effectiveness

CO2 Mosquito Traps will trap and kill measurable numbers of mosquitoes. Whether this will produce a noticeable reduction in the mosquito population in each case will depend upon a number of factors including:

• individual tolerance level
• absolute mosquito population size
• proximity
• size
• type of breeding habitat producing re-infestation
• wind velocity and direction
• species of mosquito present

Thus, the homeowner must still use repellents and practice source reduction methods as adjuncts to achieve truly effective control.
